The war against Iran

Postby repulsewarrior » Fri Jan 03, 2020 8:25 pm

...just in time for the elections; coincidence?

Tearing Americans apart, if it escalates such a conflict will be bigger than Vietnam.

...now it is up to Iran, to demonstrate a Justice far more profound and meaningful, than revenge and more hateful violence; in affect this has been going on for quite some time. And without some change of intentions, it seems, this topic too will fill with the usual horror, sad to say.

"Americans" and Americans, "Iranians" and Iranians, as their countries tear apart, i fear for those not "American" and not "Iranian" who are or will be "their" victims once "they" begin a fight for supremacy over each "other" what is not "them". It is an impeachable

...anyone remember Bush saying, "with us or against us"? At least in that scenario Americans did not fire the first shot, so to speak.

Trump is no good old boy, he is a rogue, who has effectively declared war with this action, against Iran and Iraq, without informing Congress, or anyone, other than the few in his Party he relies upon to keep its representatives in line. Question is, why did he choose this very moment to kill this person; there were many opportunities in the past, and the support to do it.

...more news,

When you challenge the big dog, you get a bitch slap!



Iran just got bitch slapped!

And save the crap. The Yanks just got rid of a terrorist that has been using his proxies to kill thousands of people and attack US Embassies.

What goes round, comes round!

The friggin fool sent General Petreus an SMS telling his "you can't do anything"

Well, the Yanks just relied to that text...

Trump 10/10 again...

I guess the Iran will now be thinking twice before they attack a US Embassy again.

Might have to think again about harassing Western Oil Tankers in International Waters.



Well, Trump just sent Iran a message. Maybe Trump should send an SMS to the Ayatollah.

Iran wrekted! Wrekted by Satan!

One hopes that Iran swallows it's pride and refrains from any sort of retaliatory action against the USA or the West. Iran, although a powerful nation its by no means a match for the USA, the worlds most powerful military nation. Let us hope that there will be no escalation as the consequences would be unimaginable.

Iranians are generally a very well educated people and will not respond with a knee jerk reaction like the US and its allies do. But no doubt they will respond in their own way and in their own time. :wink:

I think the Iranians should warn customers they could be in danger if they stay at Trump hotels ..... same if they use his golf courses! That would hurt Trump without hurting the US or its people. :D :lol: :lol:

Be guided by Paphitis! Listen to his opinions and then, going by previous predictions, the opposite is the more likely scenario. :lol:

***** The latest news is that the Iraq Government have voted to expel the US from their country. I expect Netanyahu will be only too pleased to accommodate them. :?:

I suppose another possible scenario would be China, Russia and maybe other countries entering into a 'an attack on one, is an attack on all' defence pact with Iran ...... to quote Clint Eastwood "Make my day PUNK !" would seem appropriate, it is the sort of language Trump understands.

The inevitability of it. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I imagine the Iranians - if they do anything - will follow their usual MO. Get somebody else to do their dirty work for them. :wink:

Perhaps they'll employ their other principle tactic as well. Arresting innocent people - or having them seized by their proxies - then trying them on charges of "spying". To be held in shit hole Evin, awaiting payment of the required ransom.

Whatever they do they usually go to great lengths to ensure their fingerprints aren't on it.

Do get real (I wonder how he is nowadays :? ). The idea that Russia or China is going to war with the USA over Iran is an absurdity. The Russians are no friends of the Iranians (who wants a potentially nuclear armed bunch of dictatorial Islamic nutters on their border) and have sat back with popcorn to watch Israel attack their forces in Syria on quite a few occasions. The USA is China's principal trading partner. You would probably see just how much China is a friend to Iran if they try to cut off oil supplies through the Straits of Hormuz. :shock:

Qassem Soleimani's successor, Esmail Qaani (Ghaani), is among the most criminal commanders of IRGC and the Qods Force

I think you are confusing them with the US .... that is their MO?

Really? Which innocent people? Which proxies? You mean 'spying' as in Assanges case .... or is that a different set of rules. Care to explain the ransom bit?

Whatever they do they usually go to great lengths to ensure their fingerprints aren't on it.

If their finger prints are not at the crime scene has it ever occurred to you they could just be innocent of these unproven accusations?

It's Israel that has the nuclear weapons NOT Iran! Israel and the US are the greatest threat to peace, both have long histories of attacking others ...... Iran hasn't attacked another country in over 200 years, you can't say that for either the US/NATO or the Israeli's.

A defence pact is usually a deterrent against a threatening usually more powerful nation, attacking another .... I think it would apply in this instance as a deterrent against an attack from Israel or by its proxy, the US ..... a scenario which is infinitely more probable than Iran attacking anyone else ..... including attacking Israel.

Iran won't cut off the oil in the Straits, but the US is stupid enough to try something like that in the China Sea.

I think the US has crossed the Proverbial red line with their State sponsored assassination. It appears that only Israel (of course) and the UK (as would be expected) are in support of Trumps Imperial arrogance. Now Trump is threatening cultural sites in Iran .... which with any other country would be considered a War crime .... but with the US 'rules' don't apply to them as they are The Exceptional Nation ..... a bit like Cyprus in a way ..... rules are for others!
